And just like that, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had themselves one hell of a busy morning, filling potentially three pronounced areas of need - OL, WR/KR, CB. The latest selection, the final pick in the 3rd Round before the compensatory selections are made, is Oregon State CB Kennan Lewis.
Lewis was a 4-year starter and a 3-time All-Academic Pac 10 selection. Noticing a theme here? Yup, Colbert, Tomlin & Co. want pieces that are going to go about things the right way. Good stuff.
Lewis is pretty bulky and big, standing at 6'0" and 208 pounds. Might he eventually be a safety? Perhaps. His size will compliment William Gay's more diminutive stature at some point hopefully. And before I forget, Lewis will definitely have a chance to earn his keep as a head hunter on special teams.
More analysis to follow.
